OISE is recognized as a global leader in graduate programs in teaching and learning, continuing teacher education, and education research. As one of the largest and most research-intensive faculties of education in North America, OISE is an integral part of the University of Toronto—Canada’s most dynamic and comprehensive institution of higher learning.

OISE is committed to enhancing the social, economic, political and cultural wellbeing of individuals and communities locally, nationally and globally through leadership in teaching, research and advocacy. A unique place to work, learn and grow, OISE addresses current and emerging challenges with the scale, academic excellence and collaborative energy that few institutions in the world can claim.

Our mission is to: 

  • Prepare scholars, teachers and other professional leaders to be equipped with the skills and global awareness required by an increasingly challenging and complex society, ready to influence policy and practice in their fields.
  • Discover and mobilize knowledge through leading-edge research, pedagogical and technological innovation, creativity, and scholarship-driven local, national and international collaboration.
  • Advance lifelong learning through innovative professional development programming and capacity building for educational change.
  • Contribute to public policy dialogue regarding key societal issues. 



OISE completed a period of innovative academic planning. The process of developing the plan was as important as the plan - fostering creative and meaningful participation for our faculty, staff, students, alumni, external partners and friends. It was all about thinking and acting strategically together to build an exciting and sustainable future direction for OISE in order to be a global leader when it comes to education excellence.
